Good song but I definitely enjoyed Luminary more. This might be another grower though, took me days to
enjoy Luminary as much as I do now.

I'm glad they had a guest vocalist here. Carl needs to sing more or get some god damn range, I'm gonna
be pissed if he gives another monotonous performance that hurts the album for me.

1. djent, before melodic construction is more a sound/type of production of the guitar. Tell me the part at 1:10 isnt fucking stupid and djenty. I mean come on man how can you deny that. If you think it's a good thing, all the power to you. It sounds like shit to me. What about the "our time will come" bullshit breakdown. They used to write breakdowns and climaxes with such more finesse, now it sounds like they can't write anything creative.

2. I haven't heard the new album. I have heard two songs from it, which I'm hoping represent the weakest aspects of the record.

3. IDC if you've been listening to the band longer, and I don't care if they meld the styles of all three records together. I don't care. I don't like how it sounds, I don't like the generic production and tone, I don't like the vocals, I don't like how simple and plastic the breakdowns and rhythm guitar sections feel. I don't like how most of the time the guitar melodies sound like mediocre versions of awesome melodies they wrote years earlier. I couldn't care less how long you've been a fan, and I never said you don't know what you're talking about. I don't fucking like how the music sounds. If you're going to call me an idiot for that then idk man you have comprehension issues

i think djent is a good way to describe the production style/sound of the guitars, only because in parts it sounds exactly like other bands whom people refer to as djent so idk it feels like the best way to communicate the point. i'm at least hopeful these are two of the weaker tracks, i still consider myself a fan of the band

Tell me the part at 1:10 isnt fucking stupid and djenty. I mean come on man how can you deny that.


that^ makes it seem like you have no idea what you're talking about. not every open note chug is djent and if you think that's what that riff is then every chug they've ever played is djent

at the time, and I remember this, everybody called Mirror's production shitty and the tones could've
been better and you damn well know it. but to those that heard the actual songwriting and gave it a
chance put all that aside. the guitar tone's not even that bad. maybe in album's context it won't be
so bad for you but in the meantime you gotta stop senselessly hating.

TheNexus100

lol they open chug throughout way too much of the song, even more so with luminary. thats usually what happens when a metalcore band runs out of ideas, or had no creativity to begin with. it sounds djenty because it literally has the same tone, or a very similar tone at the very least to something any generic 'djent' band (animals as leaders, vildhijarta, elitist, etc) would sound like. Even if it's not an exact replica, it very clearly resembles that. It has more of a "Solace" kind of sound/production than something I would ever want Misery Signals to sound like

TheNexus100

mirror's production/mixing was a bit of an issue. but it sounds 50x better and less hollow than most of these two songs sound. I'm not trying to hate this band, I'm a pretty big fan of them. I'm merely explaining that I don't like the direction in sound and I feel they've lost a lot of creativity, something they used to possess tons of.

"I don't think there is a guest vocalist though, sounds like Ryan, or maybe Branden"

It actually is a guest spot. There are three on the record. I believe this is actually Mixon from 7A7P plagues but I could be confusing the tracks. I heard the album before it was mixed and trust me there is plenty to be excited about. I can't imagine anyone who has enjoyed every record they've but out so far not enjoying this. Its different enough to where the band is progressing yet retains almost all the qualities of their back catalog. I think everyone who's on the fence is gonna be pleasantly surprised.

Mixon hasn't done vox for anything since 7A7P so naturally his voice is gonna sound different. But yeah him being on the record is just fucking badass.

I'd rather not spoil who the other guest spots are. But one of them isn't even in a band in this genre of music and the other isn't from a band that is even really active anymore. You won't find Johnathan Vigil (thank God, nothing against the guy or anything I just feel like he's got a guest spot on everyone's cd) or Drew York on this record if that's what you were wondering.

I'll probably get flak for this or some kind of hate but I was one of the people that contributed to the crew vocals on the album. So prior to actually recording our parts Greg sat us down (there were 6 of us total) and ran us through each track in its unmixed form. At the time myself and the others involved were the only ones outside the band to hear the entire record. This was in early June. As far as Relinquished goes I have no idea how he got his hands on it. As far as I know they haven't made it available to anyone who supported the indiegogo campaign yet and I feel like they wouldn't be selling it at shows this early but I don't know that for a fact.

It's not that he doesn't have a semblance of intelligence. He just tries way too hard to be elite. I still don't think he listens to half of what he claims, because he can't ever describe the music beyond the general descriptions you find on the band's Wikipedia page.

Found a leak that sounds like a CD rip to me, on song 9. I'll spin it a few times before I actually decide how much I like it. Karl has zero variation so far though, not even any cleans, and that irritates me, he's the weak link with his monotone, but instrumentally it's sick.

1. djent, before melodic construction is more a sound/type of production of the guitar. Tell me the part at 1:10 isnt fucking stupid and djenty. I mean come on man how can you deny that. If you think it's a good thing, all the power to you. It sounds like shit to me. What about the "our time will come" bullshit breakdown. They used to write breakdowns and climaxes with such more finesse, now it sounds like they can't write anything creative.

2. I haven't heard the new album. I have heard two songs from it, which I'm hoping represent the weakest aspects of the record.

3. IDC if you've been listening to the band longer, and I don't care if they meld the styles of all three records together. I don't care. I don't like how it sounds, I don't like the generic production and tone, I don't like the vocals, I don't like how simple and plastic the breakdowns and rhythm guitar sections feel. I don't like how most of the time the guitar melodies sound like mediocre versions of awesome melodies they wrote years earlier. I couldn't care less how long you've been a fan, and I never said you don't know what you're talking about. I don't fucking like how the music sounds. If you're going to call me an idiot for that then idk man you have comprehension issues

Let me clarify- you do listen to a lot of music, but there is also a lot of music you claim to listen to. When you comment in the latter, it's painfully obvious that you haven't heard one damn note off said record. Also, once again, the only two complaints you ever use are that the music is bland or boring, and then when you elaborate, you make a fool of yourself. You're really reaching for reasons to hate this, which tells me you probably love it. You just don't admit to it because you want to be considered "elite," but any user who's known you on Sputnik for more than five minutes can tell you're a complete fucking tool who has a serious inferiority complex.

I'm sure this album is going to polarize a lot of people. I honestly think that mirrors and controller did the same thing when they first came out. Some people are just going to have to give it the proper attention and time to grow on them. At the end of the day it's still a Misery Signals record.

I just don't understand how this can lead to polarization, it is absolutely on par with their prior releases and it's nonsensical to say otherwise. There's nothing to legitimately argue or condemn besides the "Karl is monotone" argument, I get it, he does stay within a close range, but in my opinion his vocals fit the aggression and tightness of the band perfectly, he isn't trying to steal the show from the beauty of the musicianship, where the true beauty of the band is. Any fan of their previous work or any fans of metalcore in general owe to themselves to listen roughly 3-4 times before passing some quick minded opinion. As of now, I can safely say it's a solid 4.

Yeah I couldn't remember if this one was the one with Mixon on it haha. The more I thought about it the more I started to doubt it. Ursa Minor either doesn't have a guest spot and those are Karl's cleans or they used the guy from Bad Rabbits on that track too.

The singer from Bad Rabbits does the cleans on the very last track. Got my digital dl earlier today. Maybe check your junk mail folder to make sure it didn't wind up in there accidentally.

Orchestral strings. Misplaced and/or overused on the album.

I personally enjoy the string sections. I feel like they actually compliment the overall feel of the album really well. The build up in A Glimmer of Hope wouldn't have that really epic feeling swell building in to to Luminary without them. They fit nicely into the contrast between darker and lighter parts on the record too.
